Is anyone going to IAMPETH in Omaha next week?  Do you want to meet up?  I'll be in a mask and I am fully vaccinated!

I am using the liquid gum Arabic.  I finally got the ink to flow & you will not BELIEVE what made it start flowing!  I added 5 eye droppers of distilled water & it took off just fine!  I was SO frustrated!  Thank you for your help!

Tools & Supplies / Pearl Ex Brilliant Gold Problems
« on: July 23, 2021, 10:32:22 AM »
Does Pearl Ex "get old"??  I'm in the midst of a huge wedding project & today, I cannot get the Pearl Ex to flow.  I've mixed it per the recipe (4 parts Pearl Ex, 4 parts distilled water, to 1 part gum Arabic) & it just will not flow. I've made 3 different batches. Usually, when I have this happen, if I add about 10 drops of distilled water, the ink flows nicely.  However, I've added a huge amount of water (about 5 drops at a time) & still it will not flow.  I've added more Pearl Ex and more gum Arabic & nothing changes.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I've been at this 1 1/2 hours & I am extremely frustrated!  My friend, Google, doesn't have any suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

@jeanwilson :  I am strongly considering going to Omaha!  If so, let's have lunch or dinner!  I'll be glad when they release the class list, so that I can decide if there are classes that I'd like to take!

Tools & Supplies / Re: Questions About Oblique Holders
« on: February 20, 2021, 01:00:52 PM »
Hi, Linda!  Great question!  I have many, many oblique holder. Some of them are beautiful, custom-made holders that my kids have given me for Motherís Day or my birthday. Even so, I find that I use my plastic Speedball with a metal flange 90% of the time. My nib of choice is the Brause EF66 & it fits in the Speedball just fine!

Iíve had this happen, too, because the postal worker canít read cursive of any kind. Iíve had to type out the address in a printed font & put the Copperplate addressed into the small Manila envelope. Itís very frustrating!
